Putri Pancala

Mencintai dan dicintai tak semudah yang dibayangkan.
Sang putri dan arjunanya memang saling mencintai.
Tapi masih saja dituntut untuk memperjuangkan masing-masing.
Lalu apa yang harus diperjuangkan ketika mereka sadar sudah saling mencintai dan mendapatkan apa yg mereka inginkan?
Ternyata Tuhan sedang menguji mereka.
Dengan mengatas namakan pembuktian perasaan yang seharusnya tidak perlu diragukan lagi.
Gadis itu harus rela membagi dirinya untuk orang lain. Sebagai bentuk kebaktian dan pengabdian kepada arjunanya.
Terlihat bukan ?

Bahwa ”mempertahankan tak semudah mendapatkan”

Bahkan mempertahankan terasa lebih berat dan sulit perjalananya daripada memperjuangkan.
Saat memperjuangkan dan mendapatkan kau akan merasakan euforia kemenangan dalam dirimu.
Tapi saat ‘mempertahankan’ kau tidak akan merasakan euforia sehebat saat kau sedang mendapatkanya.
Karena saat mempertahankan, kau sedang mempertaruhkan semua perjuanganmu dahulu.

Kau tahu betapa sakitnya saat perjuanganmu menjadi sia-sia karena ketidakmampuanmu mempertahankan milikmu.

Semuanya hanya akan menjadi kenangan.

Draupadi's description

"Of eyes like lotus-petals and of faultless features endued with youth and intelligence, she is extremely beautiful. And the slender-waisted Draupadi of every feature perfectly faultless, and whose body emitteth a fragrance like unto that of the blue lotus for two full miles around"

Draupadi is described to be a divinely beautiful woman with shiny black locks, a compelling complexion and lotus petal eyes.

Eye-ravishing Panchali, black-and-smiling-eyed…Dark-skinned Panchali, Lotus-eyed lady, Wavy-haired Panchali, Hair like dark blue clouds, Shining coppery carved nails, Soft eye-lashes, Swelling breasts and Shapely thighs…Blue lotus fragrance for a full krosha flowed from her body…She is known to be very chaste and virtous wife. She was born of the fire of her regal personality equally filled with spark and flame. She was a warrior princess. As daughter of Drupada, she is Draupadi. As princess of Panchala, she was called Panchali. As Krishna, she was the dark complexioned beauty. Prashati indicated her being the grand-daughter of Prishata. Sairandhri is her reference to the maid-servant of Queen of Virata. In her youth, she is Nitayauvani. Yajnaseni is a reference to being born out of fire and the overseerof fire sacrifice and fire walking ritual.

Draupadi is called one of the Pancha Maha Kanyas. She had five heroic and powerful sons: Prativindhya from Dharmaraja, Srutasoma from Bhima, Srutakirti from Arjuna, Satanika from Nakula, and Strutakarman from Sahadeva. She bore much suffering. With patience, courage, and hard-work, she made sure her enemies were annihilated. Along with other female personalities, she is a role model of patience, virtue and bravery.

Draupadi was also avatar of Goddess Shree or Wealth who was joint wife to Five Pandavas. She was to be born several times for imprisoning the Indras. First time was as Vedavati who cursed Ravana (who is another goddess Avatar Swaha, wife to Agni). She then came again as Maya-Sita especially to take revenge from Ravana while Agni hid the real Sita. Third one was partial either Damyanti (whose husband Nala was equivalent to Dharma, Vayu, Indra just like the Pandavas) and her daughter Nalayani. She married Sage Mudgala. The fifth avatar was Draupadi herself. So we find in Draupadi, a composite avatar of Kali, Parvati, Sachi, Shyamala, Usha, Bharati, Shree, Swaha, the eight goddesses.
